3 big decisions

We all make decisions every day.  But for our young people, there are some very big decisions coming their way.  Career choices often take priority.  But there are other big decisions coming.  This Sunday evening our 6:00 pm worship service is focused on our youth. The Hamilton District Christian High School praise team leads our worship. Join us!

Stood up

He forgot our appointment.  It happens.  But still.

We all want to be remembered.  The criminal on the cross next to Jesus asked to be remembered.  And Jesus assured him that God would remember him.  This Sunday we hear those words from the cross.  And they are for us.  Sunday, March 1, 10:00 a.m.

Everyone did as they saw fit

Theft, wife abuse, violent homosexuality, gang rape leading to murder, injustice, brother killing brother, kidnapping.  It’s all there in the last 5 chapters of the book of Judges:  “In those days Israel had no king: everyone did as they saw fit.”  But are we much different? Just look at the hype around the movie, Fifty Shades of Grey. When there is no accountability, no higher authority, people do whatever it is they feel like doing, whatever they see fit.  How we need a King! That's the message of this Sunday, Feb 15 at 10:00 am.  The Lord's Supper will be celebrated during this service.

We also have an evening service this Sunday, during which I will talk about my visit to Guatemala with World Renew.  We turn again to the Heidelberg Catechism, Lord's Day 15 where we consider the line of the Apostles' Creed:  "He suffered..." The evening service is at 6:00 p.m.

Celine Dion is on the list.  So is Albert Einstein and Babe Ruth and Leonardo Da Vinci and Bart Simpson.  Judge Ehud didn't make the list.  As a left-handed judge, he had the upper hand over the enemy, but only because the mighty right hand of our God was with him. God's salvation comes to us in unexpected ways!  This Sunday's message is part of our mini-series from the book of Judges.  Feb 8, 10 a.m.
